Voor verkeerskundig onderzoek en verkeersbeheersing is het gewenst metingen te doen aan de verkeersafwikkeling. Bij de bestaande systemen, doorgaans inductielussen in het wegdek, bestaan de meetdata uit puntmetingen op een vaste wegdoorsnede. Met deze puntmeüngen is het niet goed mogehjk het gedrag van voertuigen in de tijd vast te leggen. Uit...

Whenever a piece of land is reclaimed for some reasons it becomes a polder. Polder areas by definition lie below the mean sea level and constitute special environments with respect to the prevailed wet conditions. In Netherlands, where the biggest part of the country is below the mean sea level, polders are common features of topography. Three...

This research evaluates the potential of thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing to determine and continuously monitor the horizontal water temperature distribution of inland surface water bodies. Usually, monitoring temporal and spatial variability of surface water temperature takes place by measurement networks of in-situ gauges, but these...

Researches about the water cycle are done very often and are very effective to improve the efficiency of the water usage for a basin. Especially in water scarce areas, this type of research are wanted. Water scarcity occurs when water supply cannot meet the water demand. More than half of the world will experience physical or economic water...

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is under increasing water stress. A rising water demand in the Kathmandu Valley is initiated by urbanisation with a rate of 4.7 % per year and amplified by a growing trend of per capita water consumption. At the same time, water availability seems to deteriorate. However, the severity of the problem is hardly...

In the Second World War Dutch New Guinea was a strategic battle front for both the Japanese and the Allied forces in the Pacific War. A lot of airstrips were constructed and bombed during this time, of which at least three (Mongosah, Otowari and Sagan) have never been visited after the war. This provided a great opportunity to find potential war...

Expected increase of world wide food demand requires improvement of efficient water use in agriculture in arid and semi-arid regions. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) of the Netherlands and many more key actors at the level of policy, research and...

Mangroves are forest ecosystems growing in (sub)tropical saline coastal environments. With their unique root structure they serve as important natural coastal protection and provide habitats with excellent conditions for cultivating fish, shrimp and crab species. Despite all benefits mangrove forests are disappearing at alarming rates around the...

Chlorophyll (Chl) and Total Suspended Matter (TSM) are both important water quality parameters since they influence the amount of oxygen & amount of light penetrating the water. Oxygen and light are vital in marine ecosystems. The Dutch governmental organisation, Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), has been monitoring the water quality of the Dutch part...

Kwant, Martijn (author)
The North Sea is known for its marine activities, which need ocean data for safe operations. The ocean surface is described using the two-dimensional wave spectrum. This ocean wave spectrum can be estimated using wave buoys, wave models or remote sensing techniques. Wave buoys and numerical models are known to contain inaccuracies, which...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

This report proposes improvements of the land surface model (LSM) used in the turbulence-resolving Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation model (DALES). Important changes include the infiltration of precipitation, the parametrization of the soil hydraulic functions and the formulation of the soil water extraction by vegetation roots. The...

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have increased unconventional oil and gas extraction from shale reserves in the U.S. in the last decade, making up more than half of total U.S. oil and gas production at present. This activity results in NOx emissions in the extraction regions that are measurable from space using the Ozone Monitoring...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

In the second half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century the amount of natural disasters has increased rapidly. Due to this rise in occurrences, more people are affected. An important indicator for people affected is the amount of damage to buildings. To gather this information aid workers now have to go into the field to gather data on...

In Manica Province in Central Mozambique, agricultural activities consist for a significant part of farmer-led irrigated agriculture. These farmers construct and maintain their own irrigation systems with local inputs and have a commercial intent. Organization is often individual and farmers receive zero to minimal external support from donors,...

As the elderly world population increases, caregivers are switching to remote care and monitoring solutions to enable their patients to live autonomously at home for as long as possible. Such services are based on detecting and recognizing Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by using diverse types of sensors at the elder's home that transmit...

Droughts are a serious threat to the planet. Especially in agriculture, the consequences are devastating leading to reduced yields or crop failure with further implications for economics, politics and society. Being able to monitor and predict agricultural droughts is an important step to reduce agricultural vulnerability and secure livelihoods....

The growing world population and climate change have resulted in increasing stress on the Earth’s ecosystems. Especially the overexploitation of agricultural land, overgrazing and extreme droughts have resulted in land degradation, often called desertification. This leads to the disappearing of natural vegetation, the loss of soil quality, lower...
